Gertrude was born on November 11th, 1940, to John and Anna (Diakow) Pasloski, along with stepmother Jean, of Rama Saskatchewan. Gertrude grew up on a farm outside Rama Saskatchewan and attended Dobrowody school, located in the Dobrowody District near Rama Saskatchewan. Gertrude attended school until her mother’s passing in 1955; she then helped her dad look after her younger siblings. Gertrude married William “Bill” Wilgosh in October of 1958 and moved to Stenen Saskatchewan. They were blessed with Veronica in 1966. They farmed outside of Stenen, Saskatchewan until 1973, when they moved to Preeceville for the remainder of her life.
Gertrude was a stay-at-home mom, who spent many hours in her yard, tending to her garden. She took pride in her beautiful flowers and planted all of them from seed. Gertrude was also known for her Perishke dish. Anyone who tried it, wanted to have the recipe. Gertrude loved spending time with her daughter and grandchildren.
